Thank you Serpent/Paolo M. for your update and support...I am getting my spare/option part wish list ready ...

To run a 2.5 deg rear toe, I noticed there's no .5 deg brackets...will there be any available? If not, it looks like we'll be trying 2 deg rear toe.

When will Billy Easton and Jeff Cuffs post again on rctech? We need to more aspahlt racing ideas/set ups...

You guys were asking about the harder differential balls earlier in the thread. Here are the Serpent Carbide balls just released: http://www.serpent.com/product/401122

Also there are new spring sets containing the new uncoloured springs:

Also on the spring page are the conversion charts as well as the spring ratings.

Wow Paolo, great to have you here pana !! With the high level of driver support that serpent have on their onroad nitro line of products, for sure you will replicate the same for the electric line (and future offroad line) and will blast the market ...

Hope to see you driving electrics


cya !!

what parts do the S400 share with its nitro counterpart, the S720? since both are 1/10th scale?
screws maybe?
but seriously, other than that, do they have something in common?

I found so far you can use the lower bumper and the hinge pins the 720s are alittle bit shorter but you can still use them. Hope this helps..

I just copied this from the IIC thread. I know its just practice but things are looking good..

“Practice heats are running, we are on race 23 of 47 in the 1st round. Billy Easton was the fastest car so far in Modified Rubber with a 11.7 lap, next best was Andy Moore with a 11.999.”

I will have my order in tomorrow for my one, can't wait to get my mits on it.

Glad to see it is doing well at a big meet to, seems so far everyone reports it being great from the box with little needed to get it competitive using the kit setup - simply superb !!!

As I saw this car is absolutely full of steel, put the car so much heavy!
Will Serpent or any aftermarket release some light(aluminium or titanium)option parts for it?
